Great news, Bottleneck Lounge fans: owners Erin Nestor and Rebecca Denk are ready with their new venture, and Two Doors Down will open, appropriately, two doors east of Bottleneck at 2332 E. Madison this Wednesday.
From the new Madison Valley burger spot, expect a tight range of burgers available till late, including the Firehouse (with Swiss, caramelized onions, pickled jalapeños, Sriracha-lime-ginger mayo), the Banh Mi (house pickles, daikon slaw, Sriracha-lime-ginger mayo), and the 420 (white cheddar, Swiss, caramelized onions, bacon, tomato, and deep-fried avocado, served with an egg in a hole). There will also several non-burger sandwiches on the menu—a corn dog, smoked salmon melt, and more—as well as fries and ice cream.
To drink, the restaurant's opening rotation will feature one root beer on draft (which naturally can become a float) and 19 brews, including Lucky Envelope, Holy Mountain, Hellbent, Stoup, Schooner Exact, and Ghostfish Brewing's gluten free grapefruit IPA. Nestor and Denk hope to stick with local beers as much as possible, and say they'll always offer a gluten-free beer on a dedicated line, and offer most everything in growlers to-go. They'll also pour house wine by the glass.
Two Doors Down will open at 11 a.m. this Wednesday. Regular hours will then be from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday; 11 a.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday; and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday. The restaurant will be closed on Tuesdays.
